Those brave new tests

Ed Week cheerfully reports field-tests for Smarter Balanced and PARCC tests are going jus' fine:"Early Reports Suggest Few Field-Testing Snags"
I posted this comment:
This "field-testing" seems to be mostly about technical aspects of implementation. I get the impression that analysis of the test items will be done later.  But there is no indication that the big questions will even be asked: Is all this testing, the largest investment in testing ever made, worth it? Will it improve student achievement?
